Which once happily engaged celeb couples called it quits before making it down the aisle?

Sometimes, a long engagement is just a sign that two people are extremely busy with work and other responsibilities, and don't have time to plan a wedding, let alone set a date. But, as Newsroom star Allison Pill, 27, and her former fiance, Tropic Thunder star Jay Baruchel, 30, just showed by ending their two-year engagement, sometimes it's a sign of trouble in paradise.

The pair, who have been together since meeting on a movie set in 2010, announced their split to Us Weekly, following some lonely tweets from Jay. "Alone again, naturally," he tweeted, before deleting the cryptic message.
